Total piece of crap
I've seen better acting at a community college. There is not an ounce of charisma in all of the characters combined. Don't click on this one. Just keep moving.

Flawed but enjoyable film...
Maybe in my age I've been more generous with movies and I'm nowhere near as critical of films as I was in my teens and twenties where they either were great (few) and terrible (vast majority) and not much nuance which caused me to miss out on a lot of good films over the years.
Track of the Moon Beast is by no means objectively good. It's got pacing, editing, sound (even for ideal transfers) and dialogue issues that make it sub par in respect to technical measures but it just has that cheesy B-Movie charm that makes it enjoyable to watch with a couple of friends on a weekend. It's a fun little movie to watch once like 'Invasion of the Bee Girls,' 'House on Haunted Hill,' 'Robot Monster' or 'Laserblast.'
Also, make sure to see the MST3k version where they do an awesome job riffing it and a funny 'Behind the Music' spoof about the band that performed the soundtrack song 'California Lady.'

Good news / Bad news
The bad news is that William Finger, the uncredited co-creator of BATMAN, wrote the script for this cowflop. Poor man died a penniless alcoholic while Bob Kane's a plagieristic bazillionaire, simply because Bob's dad was a lawyer and Bill's wasn't.
The good news is that the song "California Lady" is in the public domain as well as the film, so if anybody needs some harmless folk-rock for their backgrounds, go for it! It's never been printed or recorded anywhere else that I could find on the net, and sure as hell never got any airplay!

Track of the moon beast
Not so good, now that thats out of the way, it's all kind of wanabe, from the actors to the script. A typical B movie of the 70's before disco. Save this for a rainy day.

Not a bad little film!
I know it's trendy and fashionable among certain types to put down this and many other such films, especially ones that have been skewered by the Mystery Science Theater 3000 crew. However, I wonder how many of the same people who laugh at little low-budget films like this have ever tried making a film themselves? Do they know how much blood, sweat and tears are involved? Do they realize that somebody made this at great personal, physical and financial expense? Do they even care?
Uh huh, just what I thought.

Attacked by a Moon Goon
Meteorite/moon rock lodges in young guy's brain, causing him to transform into a murderous lizard man when the full moon rises. Incredibly boring low-budget monster flick which needed a lot more monster. Watch this back-to-back with "Creature of Destruction" or "Zontar, the Thing from Venus" and you'll wind up thinking Larry Buchanan was some kind of genius.
